Chocolate banana cake

This cake is absolutely delicious and very easy to make. It doesn’t have a strong banana flavour and the addition of the chocolate makes for a lovely sweet cake.


  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups self raising flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 tbs light olive oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 100g chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup walnuts, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and grease a 20cm x 10cm loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. Mix the mashed banana and sugar in a large bowl until combined. Add the sifted flour, eggs, oil and milk. Stir mixture gently with a wooden spoon but be careful not to overmix. Fold in the chocolate and walnuts.
  3. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Can be served warm with cream.
